Elon Musk suggested that channelerotica to compete with his beloved snail, Gary

Drill company Ilona Mask The Boring Company declared intention to radically accelerate the pace of tunnelling. She needed new technologies and engineering solutions that have been proposed to develop third-party companies specializing in mining equipment and tunnelling. The main criterion is: participants need to outrun the snail Gary during the construction of the test tunnel.

Earlier, at the start of the Boring Company, Elon Musk was repeatedly criticised the speed of construction of new tunnels. He once said that even snails move 14 times faster. And therefore, compared with a snail, and even better to surpass it – already a good result. To prove all will have real competition with Gary, a real snail and a mascot of the company.

Inside the tunnel you need to mount the transport pad, the speed and accuracy of movement which also affect the victory in the contest. Open to all startups, inventors and trainers snails.

Physicists have learned to turn plastic bottles in supercapacitors

Scientists from the University of California, riverside have developed a technology to produce components for supercapacitors from regular waste. We are talking about polyethylene terephthalate or PET, which is made most of plastic bottles. This material is from an economic point of view is significantly superior to high-tech raw materials, like graphene or carbon nanotubes. […]

Our Solar system is most similar to space croissant

The sun emits powerful electromagnetic winds that envelop the planet in our solar system like a giant bubble. This magnetic bubble is called the heliosphere and protects the planet from dangerous space radiation. Scientists have long believed that the heliosphere is in the form of a comet – with a distinct nose and long flowing […]
